    Hi Guys,

    My first post here, please be nice.

    I have been looking around the forum and have tried a number of things out and find some work very well and other not so well but thank you to all who post.

    And onto my questions:

    I am looking to try and make some money online, Not looking to get rich quick but who wouldnt want a few extra £££'s

    I have had a look around and thinking setting up a Image based website would be a good way to go. I would use facebook integration over a number of pages to help drive traffic.

    I already have a number of pages with a good following without posting much content. I also know my way around websites but need some help with making everything work on its own.

    I would need:

    1. Image Scraper or some to mass download Photos from other sites.
    2. A simple website that once designed will simply create a new page for each image and can be left to look after its self.
    3. A easy way to upload all the photos.
    4. A way to post random photo links to my relevant pages automatic if possible.

    It will be Monetized over ad networks.

    I also have a number of computers I could leave set up running macros or other scripts to help make the posting possible.

    I am not looking for someone to hold my hand but if I could be pointed into the right direction it would be appreciated.

    Thank you for any help.

    1. ImageScraper: Try TumblrRipper, it will download all photos from the selected tumblr blog, it's awesome.
    2. Probably blogspot, because it's good for newbies, and it has built in adsense monetization. OR wordpress, a bit complicated but more customizable.
    For the 3. and 4. point I havn't got any idea.

    Thanks guys, some helpful tools will take a look at both of them.

    I know my way around wordpress so would like to use that if possible but happy to learn a new tool to get what I need. As I would need away to simply set and forget the upload and creation of pages I know wordpress would be around 5 or 6 clicks per post.

    Thanks

    Making the site is easy, monetizing the site won't be easy.

    AdSense will be good for your main source of income.
    Amazon will be good for monetizing some of the posts. Find funny products and add your affiliate link.
    If you get traffic, you can also sell advertising space on your site through BuySellAds or some other company

    Thank you, Now just need to find a way to make the uploading and creation as automatic as possible. I am happy to put time and work in but would be happier not to have to upload each and every photo on its own.

    Again thank you for the help so far.

    If you're kind of a geek you can learn a programming language such as PHP or Python to scrape those images. After a little more experience you can create scripts to auto load those pictures into blog posts
